The Green New Deal Won’t Actually Work

That didn’t take long to figure out. While the Democrats’ interns are trying to justify their claim that one dollar of infrastructure spending leads to a six dollar return on the investment, the data the Democrats are using to show the impact on climate change is actually already out.

The Daily Signal has the details.

Using the same climate sensitivity (the warming effect of a doubling of carbon dioxide emissions) as the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change assumes in its modeling, the world would be only 0.137 degree Celsius cooler by 2100. Even if we assumed every other industrialized country would be equally on board, this would merely avert warming by 0.278 degree Celsius by the turn of the century.

One of the biggest sources of carbon dioxide emissions is developing countries.

But while one of the priorities of the Green New Deal is to make the U.S. a lead exporter in green technologies, assuming developing countries will forgo cheap, abundant carbon dioxide-emitting energy for more expensive intermittent sources is pure fantasy.
